The PC version of Among Us is experiencing a rise in popularity like last year. But if earlier the main event was the release, now the impetus was the free distribution in the Epic Games Store.
According to Innersloth community director Victoria Tran, the peak of players after the May 29 hand was about 2 million. The “usual” result before that was an indicator of 300-350 thousand users.
As Tran notes, there are many factors contributing to the increase in the number of players, such as the release on other platforms, the long free weekend due to the holidays, and others. But there’s no denying the power of giveaways, as people just love it when paid video games go free.
anyways! more importantly the overall sentiment was great, funny seeing ppl scream at their friends that they had no excuse not to play with them now, and overall having new beans in the community 🥳
